This custom-designed timber-frame home was crafted to elicit the cozy atmosphere of a true mountain retreat, yet with an airy quality with all the modern conveniences. Exquisite craftsmanship and quality materials inside and out, combined with breathtaking mountain views seen from almost any window in this “green” energy-efficient home or from a relaxing spot in the 6-8 person outdoor spa, located along world-class golf courses, make our home unlike any other in Teton Springs.
The home provides access to many of the west's most enjoyable attractions, and is located 20 miles to the west of Jackson, Wyoming with year-round access, and 60 miles to the east of Idaho Falls, Idaho. The south entrance to Yellowstone National Park is 76 miles from our front door and the Grand Teton National Park Visitor Center is only 39 miles away. Family-friendly Grand Targhee Ski Resort is located 22 miles from our home, while the steeps of Jackson Hole Mountain Resort are only 24 miles to the east.
This home is a spacious 4 bedroom, 4 bath and loft, coming in at about 3,678 sf of luxurious living space, and 1,240 sf of covered porches and decks, with a 6-8 person outdoor hot tub on the back covered porch. The home was designed with the environs in mind and with some of the best materials and systems available-- hickory hardwood floors, heated slate and travertine tile in bathrooms and entrances, a 30,000 BTU Quadra gas fireplace with stunning stone hearth in the great room and surrounds, a gas fireplace in the master bedroom that can perhaps heat the entire house by itself, a bubble bath tub and body spray glass enclosed shower in the master bath, a gourmet kitchen with Wolf/Subzero appliances (including a Subzero wine refrigerator to safely store your favorite wines at the proper temperature), Brazilian granite slab and limestone countertops, custom rustic cherry hardwood cabinets and trim, a true smart home with LiteTouch low voltage wiring, a wireless security system and CAT-5 wiring, a whole-house Russound and Bose audio and home entertainment system, and a wall-mounted 60” LCD HDTV in the great room and 40” LCD HDTV in the master bedroom are just a number of the features our home boasts. As noted, the home is “green”-- poly-urethane insulation combined with a forced-air heat system, an energy efficient heat recovery system, and a ventilation system that exchanges the air 5 times per hour make this home the choice for the “green” conscious vacationer.
Whether you enjoy reading books, playing board games, cards, or video games, watching movies or one of the satellite-fed channels, roaming the Internet through cellular broadband, or simply relaxing in the solitude of a bubble bath, our home provides something for everyone to do or enjoy in the indoors—be as busy or lazy as you want.
Oh, but if you like the outdoors, the home, the community and the surrounds have something for everyone. From world-class golf (note the courses in the community are private and not accessible by renters, but public courses are nearby), skiing, snowboarding, and fly fishing, to breathtaking hiking, horse back riding, and mountain biking, the Teton Valley offers it all.
For the golfing enthusiasts, the championship courses at the Teton Reserve, the Links, the Jackson Hole Golf & Tennis Club, and the Teton Pines Golf Club, and complete practice facility offer a golf experience that can be enjoyed by all.
For the fishing enthusiasts, more than 50 acres of ponds, lakes, and streams are woven throughout the community. Spend the afternoon fishing for Yellowstone Cutthroats a few minutes walk from the home or arrange a guided trip on the South Fork, Teton, Snake, Salt and Green Rivers.
For the hiking enthusiasts, hiking opportunities are virtually endless in and around Teton Valley with hundreds of miles of trails in the Grand Teton National Park, Targhee National Forest and Jedediah Smith Wilderness.
For the bicyclists, you can easily access the trails in the Big Hole Mountains or Targhee National Forest from Teton Springs. Both areas are well known among mountain biking enthusiasts and offer some of the most scenic and challenging trails in the western United States. From the beginner terrain of the Pack Saddle Lake Trail to the expert single track of Blacks Grunt, the hundreds of miles of area trails ensure an enjoyable biking experience for riders of all skill levels.
For the winter enthusiasts, the area is amazing! Family-friendly Grand Targhee is best known for one thing...SNOW...and lots of it! With average annual snowfall in excess of 500 inches, it's no wonder why readers of Ski Magazine named Grand Targhee the #2 resort in North America for snow. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort is known for its steeps. Yes, this is 'The Big One'...4,139 feet of vertical descent to the valley floor from the 10,450 foot summit of Rendezvous Mountain.
For the dining enthusiasts, if you want a break form creating delights in the gourmet kitchen, the local fare offers casual to fine dining. Try the locally caught trout, or bison and elk at one of the local restaurants. The Forage in Driggs and Spoons in Victor are several of our local favorites. Or perhaps enjoy a huckleberry shake at the Victor Emporium. Or drive on over to Jackson. The dining there is amazing!
Enjoy your stay!
